Julia Roberts: World Should Celebrate Diwali

Julia Roberts thinks the world should celebrate Diwali.

The 'Eat Pray Love' actress believes the Hindu 'Festival of Lights' - which this year runs for five days from November 5 - should be celebrated throughout the world because it celebrates "humanity, peace and prosperity".

She said: "Diwali should be celebrated unanimously throughout the world as a gesture of goodwill.

"It not only belongs to Hinduism but is universal in nature and in its essence too. Diwali ignites the values of self-confidence, love for humanity, peace, prosperity and above all eternity which goes beyond all mortal factors."

The 43-year-old beauty, who recently revealed she was a convert to Hinduism, confesses she has become interested in the spirituality of the faith because it is more than a "mere religion".

She told The Times of India: "Ever since I developed my liking and fondness for Hinduism, I have been attracted and deeply fascinated by many facets of the multi dimensional Hinduism. spirituality in it transcends many barriers of mere religion."

Julia spent time filming in India for romantic comedy movie 'Eat Pray Love' and plans to return to the country regularly to help her "creativity".

She said: "I promise to return to this sacred land again and again for the best of creativity."
